A Voice From Patton Against the
Primary System.
-flclltor News
Seeing the subject of conven
tion vs. primary election discussed
in the county papers, and hearing
the same discussed wherever a
group of voters get together, has
prompted me to write this from
the country to show that there
is at least one of the great un
washed throng who is not afraid
but what the city will accord to
the country all her rights in a con
vention, and also to enter solemn
protest against the primary sys
tern. It has been tried and prov
en a failure. The candidate for
office who was so disposed could,
by the judicious use of a little
money and bad whiskey, have re
peating enough done on primary
election day to insure election
over any one who was too honora
ble to resort to such method. I
was told by men of veracity that
an election or two back a hack
load of eight persons and it was
also said they were railroad hands
from an adjoining county voted
in every ward in the city of Waco
and then drove out to White Hall
and Robinson and did the same.
So, instead of eight voters, there
was actually counted not less than
forty, and were this the only in
stance of such it could be over
looked. One other instance and
that in the country where five
boys and I believe all under age,
voted at home, went to Waco
voted in all the wards, and at a
country box ' between home and
How will any Of the advocates
of the primary system trot out
anything to beat this in flagrantly
outraging that which all fair mind
ed men wo'ild love to see accom
plished, "the survival of the fit
test." I hope the executive commit
tee of the county will for once
give us a chance to nominate by
convention or turn the whole ca
ravan loose, every fellow for him
self, and the devil take the hind
most. Old Timer.
John F. Marshall.
Mr. John F. Marshall will con
test with other aspirants for 'the
office of county clerk, and being
thoroughly competent, and pos
sessed of every qualification
necessary for a suc
cessful discharge of the duties of
county clerk Mr. Marshall feels
that his condidacy will meet with
general approval. He has been
a. resident of McLennan county
twenty-years and never asked for
an office before.
OfSpoclmons of Natural History
hero In Waco.
It is an important fact, known
to but few of the citizens of Waco,
that Col. Albert D. Rust, residing
at 1 1 2 1 South Ninth street, has
the largest general collection of
specimens of natural history,
either public or private, to be
found in Texas.
This collection, which has re
quired years to accumulate and
cost considerable money, consists
of land, fresh water and marine
shells from all parts of the world;
fossils from all the geological
formations from the lower silurian
to the tertiary; Indian and mound
builders relics; specimens of
nearly all the precious, rare and
common metals; crystals, precious
and building stone; corals; sea
fans and sea feathers from the
"Gardens of the sea;" about twen
ty different varieties of petrified
woods; fossil ferns of rare
beauty; several specimens
of anthracite, bituminous and
lignite coal, and hundreds of his
toric and valuable relics from
The marine shells of which he
has several hundred different vari
eties of the most beautiful and
interesting, arc mostly from the
southern hemisphere. Of fossils,
Col. Rust has collected over two
hundred different varieties from
the cretaceous of Texas; this, he
says, is the largest collection of
Texas cretaceous fossils in the
world, as only about seventy-six
have ever been figured and de
scribed. The most beautiful and
interesting of the last named arc
Toxastcrs, Hemiasters. Ostreas,
Ammonites, Exogyras, Dia
demac, Fish teeth and Vertebra,
Cyphasoma, Holectipus planatus,
Pyrina parrye and Trigonias.
The richest fields and best pre
served specimens of the cretac
eous of Texas arc found in Tar
rant, Denton, Dallas, Hood, Bos
que, Johnston and Callahan coun
ties. Col Rust has also made a
large collection from the Carboni
ferous of Texas.
Kis Indian specimens have been
collected from both the north and
south and consist ot flint arrow
heads and other flint instruments
gods of pottery, beads and sacred
vessels of the Aztec and Toltecs
badges of honor, etc., besides
many others. He has an ideal
restoration of the celebrated Nean
derthal man who lived 25,000
years ago.
His collection of metals is quite
interesting and valuable and con
sists of gold, silver and copper
from fifteen or twenty different
mines in this country and Europe;
besides this he has many speci
mens of the more common metals,
Probably Col. Cust's collection of
crystals and precious stones is
more beautiful and attractive than
any of his other collections, unless
it may be his shells. His croci
dalite or "tiger eye," from South
Africa, pieces four or five inches
long are exquisitely beautiful,
many varieties of moss fortifica
tion band and Brazilian agates
from different countries, ama
thysts, Amazon stone, onyx, Hot
Springs crystals, marble, granite,
sand and other varieties of build
ing s-one from most of the states,
in the union. Of corals-gems of
the sea, he has several varieties
branching, brain, mushroom, cox
comb and other corals, fifteen or
twenty varieties. Besides the
Used in Millions of Homes
brief mention of a very few of the
above classified specimens, there
are hundreds of relics, and speci
mens not classified, that wc have
not space to give our readers.
At the State Fair at Dallas in
1886 Col. Rust was awarded fine
first premiums and one diploma
as follows:
For the best general collection
of fossils; for the best general col
lection of the reptilian age; best
collection of cretaceous fossils o
Texas; best collection of carboni
ferous fossils of Texas; best gene
ral collection of shells; and a dip
loma for the best collection of
Ethnological, mound builders and
Indian relics.
There arc over 14,000 speci
mens in this collection and it is
one of which the state and espe
cially Waco should be proud.
